Situating Sexualities: Queer Representation in Taiwanese Fiction, Film and Public Culture

Situating Sexualities approaches the queer sexualities represented inrecent Taiwanese fiction, film and public culture as dynamic formations that combine local knowledge with globalizing discourses ongay and lesbian identity to produce sexualities that are multiple, shifting and inherently hybrid. Equally, the book pushes out the limits of 'queer' to challenge the Eurocentrism of much queer theory to date. Consistently critical of essentializing accounts of 'Chinese'culture, the book nevertheless highlights some of the important ways in which Taiwanese formations of dissident sexuality differ from the familiar Euro-American formations.'--BOOK JACKET.
